Published 10 Comments

Jorge Mendes is trying to speed up David de Gea's transfer from Manchester United to Real Madrid, reports Spanish newspaper AS.

The super agent is aware that the goalkeeper's situation at Old Trafford is becoming desperate. Louis van Gaal confirmed as much when agreeing to leave him out of Saturday's game against Tottenham Hotspur.

De Gea is so desperate to complete a move to La Liga that he is in no mental state to turn out for his current team. He had already said his goodbyes to staff at Carrington and had not expected to return on July 6.
